ASI’s Top 10 Greatest Golf Gifts for Dad:

  • Golf bag, from King Par. A lightweight, multi-pocket golf bag with retractable legs is the perfect high-end gift for executives or as a prize for tournament winners.
  • Oversized umbrella, from Windbrella. Provides great coverage and features vents to prevent the wind from turning it inside out. Easily imprinted with a school or company logo.
  • Cover keeper, from Eisinger Smith Inc. Ingenious design prevents this cover keeper from disappearing like a missing sock on laundry day.
  • Spotless swing 3-in-1 towel, from Pro Towels Etc. Comes with a carabiner so it easily attaches to any golf bag loop. Three surfaces: inside for muddy clubs, a grooved towel for irons and the outside surface for hands and faces.
  • Ball marker, from Tin Cup Products. Amateurs can make like the pros and use a similar felt-tipped marker and tin cup to mark their balls.
  • Hook/slice correcting ball, from Polara Golf. This clever golf ball can correct hooking/slicing tendencies by 75%, which means straighter drives from the tee box.
  • Divot tool set, from EMT. The switchblade-action divot repair tool comes in a gift tin and includes three ball markers that adhere via a magnet. Totally customizable.
  • Shot glass, from Crown Products. Made of food-grade silicone and will not break, even if it’s run over by a car. Turn over to reveal a dimple on the bottom that can be used as a golf tee.
  • Wristlok bracelet, from Fey Promotional Products Group. Perfect for golf outings, comes with removable tabs that can be used for a drink or to participate in contests like longest drive.
  • Cap with ball marker, from Headwear USA. Cap features a unique magnetized ball marker.

Promotional products, or advertising specialties, are items imprinted with logos or slogans to market a company, organization, product, service, achievement or event. In 2011, sales of ad specialties hit $18.5 billion.
